I have a stupid question:


When you are checking the gauge of the project and it says X# of rows = 4 inches, but the project calls for 2 strands to be held together. Am I supposed to check my gauge with the two strands or one?

In saying, it seems like I should be checking it using the actual yarn that i will be using on the project, but I'm not sure

TIA

I think it kind of depends. Is the 4 st./inch on the yarn, or is it in the pattern?

If it's on the yarn, I don't pay TOO much attention to it, but if it's on the pattern, that's the part that I would gauge for.

I hope that makes sense.

Its part of the pattern.

Gauge : 11 hdc = 4"/10cm
Pattern: pattern is worked holding 2 strands of yarn together throughout.

so that means I should check my gauge with the 2 strands together. I guess that would make the most sense and I would do the same if I was working with chunky vs worsted weight

I think I was getting confused because I bought 2 patterns from the same person. one using 2 strands together, the other a single strand, but they gauge instructions look the same

I was doing all kinds of crocheting today. Finished 2 projects and starred to learn slippers.

I also finally bought a new sewing box. Mine was older than me and in pretty rough shape.

I am working on a cowboy hat that I have to get done by Sunday for a baby shower
I find what helps me is to pull through the first loop alone, then I can go through the other two together. Something about the angle you have to go through it is slightly different, I think.

Scrills those are way too cute. I pinned the link to that pattern for the next time I need a cute gift.

Penguin purse for DD. My mom is going to line it for more structure. It's my first bag and I'm happy with it but learned tricks for next time.

I made a manatee for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day (crochet, I can't knit!)...

Nothing says "I love you" like a manatee. That's adorable!

My middle daughter is getting all prepared for her senior prom. She has a dress and shoes
so I made a necklace and earrings. Bracelet and hair clip or tiara thingy to go still but here's photos of what's completed so far. Ignore the model - it's me, not her. She doesn't know what I'm making, just that I am making it. She is very trusting that way...LOL! She has a champagne colored fairy-princess dress with spaghetti straps, 50's waist and verticle ruffled to the floor skirt.

ETA: I think my favorite part is the teardrop pearl that hangs down in the back from where the length of the necklace is adjustable. If she wears her hair up, the back deserves pretties too!

Cute. Is that a brooch in the middle?

You must have done a great job in the past for her to trust you :-)
